Mina's Printables:) Questions (1)      Craft Supplies (1)     
A lot of craftspeople use a multitude of craft materials - chopping and changing as the mood fits. There's usually one thing that keeps recurring - one thing they keep coming back to.

Buttons galore!


Are you a canvas freak? Maybe its paper, buttons, wool or paint. Or is cardboard your thing? What is your preferred crafting material?

Paper for me at this moment!

SCRAP PAPER
Holds my ideas and the way I develop them as notepaper, drafts and mockups.
Papercraft
Print and make papercraft.
Can get it for nothing
Recycle at the same time.

COPYPAPER
Most of the above plus
Even some of the cheap stuff is acid free so good for archival purposes.

OLD BOOK PAGES
Thick newsprint good for printing/painting/drawing on.
Paper mache
From junk shops

AVAILABILITY
If you're resourceful you'll find it everywhere.
Junk mail
Magazines
Wrapping / florist papers

PLUS all the lovely stuff you can buy


Love it! :) [heart,heart,heart]

I love plaster of Paris. It's not as messy or as difficult to use as many people imagine. It costs very little for a big bag and it provides hours of fun with kids. The finished pieces are fun to make and very satisfying! Try making fossils or little creatures to paint.

I've not been brave enough to have a good go at this. I admire sculptors :)
Bling and glitter... I love adding bling or glitter on a project.sometimes i feel there might be something missing on the project im creating and bling/glitter always solves that problem! It some how make a project look more finished and polished and i looks oh so pretty :)

Pizzazz is always good :)
Paper
With you there :)
My favourite crafting material is paper!
We must be twins! :)
At one time it was clay. Sorry to be a copy cat but these days it is paper in its many forms, from tissue through to all types of cardboard.
Not a copy cat! Paper is so versatile, as is the creative mind :)

Yay! Paper is sooo good 😀
Mixed media, once I get going I see connections everwhere
Agreed 😀
I really enjoy anything. It's the making that I enjoy most. That said, I'd have to add the thread and fabric are my most favorite, followed by paper and pen, then pretty much paper, paint, glue, recycling ... even saws and wood and pvc pipes.

I just found this page yesterday while looking for printables for my granddaughters. While I did find things for them, I must admit you got my gears turning for using your journaling and collage items. I haven't been journaling enough lately and I'm hoping this gives me the push I need/want. Thank you!
Hi. Thanks for your comments. I have phases of crafting favs but tend to keep rotating.

So glad the journal stuff has twigged some inspiration, that's so good to hear xxx
At the moment my favorite craft material is yarn. That's because my first Great Grand Baby was born recently so I've been sewing, crocheting and knitting things for him. I have been doing all kinds of crafting for over 50 years and have been enjoying it all, from pouring ceramics to needle work to wood working and so on. I haven't become an expert at any one craft but I've sure enjoyed trying them all !!!
Hi Bloom....that's so wonderful you are crafting 50+ years on. It's great to retain creative feelings from childhood. Congratulations on the great grandbaby xxx
